Atlanta Hard Money Lending: The new game in town
As I’m sure you have heard conventional lenders in Atlanta are not lending to most borrowers for various reasons. To get a conventional loan in Atlanta borrowers have to jump through many more hoops for a very straightforward loan. If a borrower cannot fully show their income there is no hope with a conventional lender. For example if someone were self employed they can almost forget a conventional loan. What is a borrower to do that is financially capable of a loan?
Atlanta Hard Money Lenders:
